Teenager granted bail

Al Stephens has been granted bail in the sum of $15,000.

Stephens appeared before Magistrate Gloria Augustus at the Roseau Magistrate Court Tuesday afternoon.

The defendant is being charged with conspiring, along with others, to rob $4,500 from Kurby Thomas and Devin Joseph on June 6 in Goodwill.

During the time of the incident, the defendant was on bail for a previous charge associated with the unlawful use of firearms.

Police prosecution objected to the bail of the defendant earlier this month on the grounds that there were other persons involved in the alleged crime and if granted bail the defendant would have interfered with investigations.

Defense lawyer Zena Dyer made the bail application on behalf of the teenage defendant who has been behind bars for almost three weeks now.  Dyer pointed out that police have had enough time to pursue thorough investigation in the matter.

The defendants mother Yvette Jean- Pierre stood as surety to his bail.

The matter will be heard on August 26.

    WAW!!!So he was released on bail for firearms related charges, while on bail, he robbed another person, and now he is out again? So what do you expect from him now? does anyone expect him to suddenly become a model citizen? What will it take to keep him off the streets? A murder? WAW…Simply amazing.

      I thought the court does tell them when they on bail they not supposed to commit any offense or they will violate the terms of their bail? so now the question is…what is the punishment for violating terms of bail? i guess is more bail….smh

      If only you could read and understand, the charge did not say that he was the person who robbed the complainant, huh, he is charged with conspiracy, yes conspiracy, he is the only one that the police have so my question is with whom or what he conspired it is kind of difficult if three long weeks after the police have not charged anyone else for that so what should be the outcome let us wait and see what happens. Oh my.
